Ohio Looks a Lot Like Michigan

Mitt Romney’s coalition in Ohio is very similar to how he won Michigan: he’s carrying Catholics, suburbanites, moderates and upper income voters according to the CNN poll.  Rick Santorum is winning Tea Party acolytes, farmers and downscale voters.

Interesting: Romney is splitting conservatives with Rick.  Given Mitt’s edge with moderates, this bodes well for tonight.  Santorum’s best hope for an upset is a massive rural turnout that the exit poll hasn’t picked up.  (This has happened before: the main the exit polls gave us President Gore in 2000 and President Kerry in 2004 is an under-estimation of rural votes.)
